Recto / Verso: Art Publishing in Practice

Presented by Artbook @ MoMA PS1 Bookstore and Hauser & Wirth Publishers

This August, Artbook @ MoMA PS1 Bookstore and Hauser & Wirth Publishers present Recto / Verso: Art Publishing in Practice, a month-long event series exploring the creative processes and ecosystems in the art publishing communities of New York. Bringing together a range of voices and participants, Recto / Verso features local small presses and zine collectives, as well as digital, nonprofit, and institutional publishers.

Recto / Verso: Art Publishing in Practice

Each week of Recto / Verso will center on a pertinent topic within the field of art publishing, beginning with an in-depth look at how art books circulate in creative communities, then shifting focus to activism and zine publishing, artists’ books and artist-run presses, and concluding with digital, institutional, and non-profit publishing.

Events—which take place at both Artbook @MoMA PS1 Bookstore in Long Island City and the Hauser & Wirth Publishers Bookshop in Chelsea—will include panel discussions with notable publishers and artists as well as three hands-on workshops that will give participants the opportunity to learn a variety of bookmaking and binding techniques.

Recto / Verso: Art Publishing in Practice

The series will culminate in a publication produced by Hauser & Wirth Publishers that will act both as a record of the series—featuring contributions from each week’s presenters—as well as a reference guide mapping publishing resources in New York. The publication will be launched at the New York Art Book Fair in late September 2018.

The panel will also explore the many modes of distribution of artists’ books, from sharing and exchange, to sales, web publications, and e-books. Participants include: Nicole Kaack (Dedalus Fellow in The Museum of Modern Art Archives), Emmy Catedral (Coordinator of Fairs and Editions at Printed Matter), Sharon Helgason Gallagher (President & Publisher of ARTBOOK | D.A.P.), Lisa Pearson (Publisher at Siglio Press).

The workshop will also explore local examples of zine workshops and collectives before delving into zine-making techniques. Everyone will leave with their own handmade piece of activist art, ready to photocopy and distribute.

Thursday, 16 August 16, 7PM
Reimagining the Art Object: Artist-Run Presses and Artists’ Books
Hauser & Wirth Publishers Bookshop
548 West 22nd Street, New York

Please join four artist-run presses and bookmakers—Small Editions, Nontsikelelo Mutiti, Peradam Press, and Cooperative Editions—for a discussion on how books function as art objects in their own right. This group will address the creative process behind bookmaking and publishing as well as the politics, practices, and ideas that drive projects. Participants include: Corina Reynolds (Director & Co-founder Small Editions), Nontsikelelo Mutiti (Self-publisher and Graphic Designer), Elizabeth Jaeger (Co-founder of Peradam Press) and Sam Cate-Gumpert (Co-founder of Peradam Press), and Nicholas Weltyk (Publisher at Cooperative Editions).


Tuesday, 21 August 21, 7PM
Publishing in Spaces: Institutions, Galleries, and the Web
Hauser & Wirth Publishers Bookshop
548 West 22nd Street, New York

Please join us for a panel discussion moderated by Hauser & Wirth Publishers that focuses on the way institutional missions—the goals of galleries, museums, and other established print and digital publishers—influence the process of publishing itself. With art as the published content, how do publications become vehicles that accomplish what these institutions set out to do? How do these publications exist independently from the programs and spaces for which they’re created? Participants include: Hannah Kim (Business and Marketing Director for the Department of Publications at The Museum of Modern Art), Zachary Kaplan (Executive Director of Rhizome at the New Museum), Mark Polizzotti (Publisher and Editor-in-Chief at The Metropolitan Museum of Art), Kaye Cain-Nielsen (Editor-in-Chief of e-flux journal).

Participants include: Miriam Katzeff (Co-founder of Primary Information), Craig Mathis (Bookstore and Distribution Manager of Printed Matter), Joanna Ahlberg (Managing Editor at The Drawing Center) & Noah Chasin (Executive Editor at The Drawing Center), Camille C. Drummond (Publisher at Pioneer Works Press), Lesley A. Martin (Creative Director & Publisher, The PhotoBook Review at Aperture Foundation).
